3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We spent 4 nights here after spending 4 nights in Princeville. It's true that the cottage is away from the tourist crowded areas of Kauai. It's also very close to Waimea Canyon, which is great. However, there aren't many restaurants to go to and Poipu is at least 30 minutes away. The house itself has plenty of space and is clean and cozy. It's also right down the street from the beach which is perfect for sunrises and sunsets. By far the worst aspect of the cottage is the noisy residents of the neighborhood. The people are quiet...the roosters and dogs are extremely loud. The roosters start cock a doodle dooing at 1am and don't stop all day. Impossible to get a good nights sleep. And when the dogs hear the roosters, they start barking. Probably nothing that the owners can do about this, but not ideal being woken up each night of your vacation.

Management response:

Aloha and thank you for taking the time to write this review. I am sorry the crazy roosters kept you from getting a good nights sleep. I guess we become immune to them:) I am glad that you enjoyed the west side sunsets, sunrises and the incredible Waimea Canyon. Your review has inspired me to leave a box of earplugs...

The Island Zen Cottage was quaint and well suited to our needs, there was nothing lacking for a home feel. It has all you need to prepare your own meals and enjoy a lovely meal inside or out on the lanai. The laundry facility was greatly appreciated and convenient. The cottage was cool and comfortable.
It was within walking distance to the beach to take in the morning sunrise or afternoon beach strolls. We enjoyed the feeling of being in a small community away from the larger populations of travelers. The island is quite small so you are never far from anywhere you want to go.
We enjoyed taking in the Saturday market in Kekaha to stock up on some produce for the week.
We were more than happy with our 3 week stay, it just goes by too fast is all. We would go back in an instant.
